Nils Butenschøn retires from his position as Professor at the NCHR on first of July this year. The seminar is organised around central topics in Butenschøn’s academic works over the past 45 years: Nationality conflicts, models of power sharing in deeply divided societies, and the study of citizenship and human rights as a basis for legitimate state authority. Empirically, most of the works, including the five books Butenschøn has published in the last decade, have focused on the Middle East and the region’s modern political history.
